HAVE received the latest rates notice, and am still in shock, I wonder how many residents felt the same I did. As I am on an aged pension, having a whopping $400 extra to pay on top of the previous bill has hit very hard and I feel for those who have also been dealt with a substantial rise.
Apparently we unlucky ratepayers are paying for Council’s mistakes, and we will have to wait and see what our future rates will be. In the meantime we will be forced to cut back on other things in order to cope with the cost of living. Thanks for nothing Whitsunday Regional Council. M Jondahl CONWAY
